Women Make Up Below 20 Percent of Nonacting Oscar Nominees, Group Finds
The Women’s Media Center, which was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem and tracks gen-der equity, or lack thereof, in the media, found that in non-acting categories, women made up under 20 percent of the nominees. In seven categories — directing, writing, original screenplay and more — dudes drew all of the nominations. The one place where women are establishing a foothold is in documentary features, with women winning four times in the last decade and nabbing two of five nominations this year.
